On Thursday May 4, Oddny Eir, author of Land of Love and Ruins, will appear at PEN World Voices Festival's Resonances event at Baruch College.

This year’s festival, which runs from May 1-7 in New York, will feature 150 writers in a series of talks, readings and workshops related to social justice, sexuality and politics.
